* Note about 2021 Summer Abroad Programming
The current pandemic is an ongoing, constantly evolving situation. We are currently working with our international partners on new protocols for summer 2021; however it may not be possible to offer all programs. Should the University allow study abroad programs to run next summer, decisions as to what sites will be available will be made based on travel advisories and University risk management guidelines.
We will update the website as soon as more information is known.
